SEX AND THE CITY star Jason Lewis has lifted the lid on his brief romance with former SPIN CITY star JENNIFER ESPOSITO - insisting it was destined to fail.

The blonde hunk - who plays Kim Cattrall's on-screen love interest SMITH JERROD in the hit show - dated the Latina stunner briefly last year (03) but broke it off soon after.

But Lewis, 32, is quick to point out the pair remain friends and get on famously.

He says, "I dated Jennifer for a second. She's an incredible sweetheart - but I just didn't think it would work for me."

And Jason is unsure whether it was his steamy nights at the Summer of Sam beauty's apartment that prompted a fall out between Esposito and her neighbours.

Jason laughs, "I don't know if that was me. But maybe I should take the credit. But good for her - too much noisy sex and neighbours be damned."
